Pediatric Surgery Fellowship at Phoenix Children's Hospital
The Pediatric Surgery Fellowship is a robust and unique training program for individuals interested in pursuing a career in pediatric surgery. The program is supported by the graduate medical education infrastructure at both the Mayo Clinic Arizona (program sponsor) and Phoenix Children's Hospital (clinical site). The hospital is currently the sixth largest free standing children’s hospital in the US and is determined to continue to provide cutting edge care with superior outcomes to its patients.
Phoenix Children’s and the Mayo Clinic Arizona are committed to the medical education of competent pediatric surgeons, providing an environment of academic enrichment, research and a comprehensive educational experience for clinical pediatric surgery fellowship training. There are 12 full time pediatric surgeons that serve as faculty with a diverse background including advanced MIS, trauma/critical care, oncology, and neonatal surgery. In addition, the program and faculty actively participate in research within the institution as well as serving as the primary investigator in multi-institutional research projects. It is anticipated that fellows finishing from our program will be competitive for any potential employment opportunities that they would want to pursue.
Mayo Clinic Arizona serves as the sponsoring institution for 31 ACGME-accredited residency and fellowship programs. Trainees from these programs rotate to Phoenix Children's Hospital for elective and required pediatric experiences. Mayo Clinic Arizona and Mayo Clinic School of Graduate Medical Education (MCSGME) provide the administrative infrastructure and GMEC oversight to insure high-quality graduate medical education.
